We were able to combine our trip to Minnesota to see them off with the task of sorting through my dad's house to get it ready for auction.
My brother, nephews, hubby and I were there for a few days going through my dad's things and then Daughter #2 flew in to Minnesota and she and hubby headed east with the newlyweds to Morgantown, West Virginia.
Even though we've lived 1000 miles from daughter #1 for the last five years while she attended college, she was surrounded by family, Luke's family and life long friends. Now she and Luke are off on this new adventure on their own and they're even farther away from us.
But, this is a good thing. So while my heart pangs a little because they truly are out on their own, we know they'll do great.
Plus, now hubby and I have a new place to go visit and explore!
I'm already planning a trip this fall to visit and help Eden refinish some furniture!
Til next time ~ find your joy!
